Round House Overalls Flasher

Round House Bib Overalls pocket flasher from around 1978. I know it's pretty new compared to all the other stuff I've posted, but it's still workwear ephemera. I was pretty surprised that Round House is still in business. The brand was established in 1903 in Shawnee, Oklahoma by the Shawnee Garment Manufacturing Company. The name Round House comes from the shape of the railroad repair station in Shawnee which is pictured below.

From the Round House website
Round House has a pretty good history section on their website that's filled with images. You can check it out by going to the link below.


  1. I wear nothing but, Bib Overalls these days and prefer "Roundhouse" due to them still being made in America. And no I'm not a redneck!!

  2. I wish more companies would do American made.
